    Yeah, wasn't immediately keen on the handheld face shield, much rather have something that allows me to handle the welder properly. Thanks for the heads up, will see if I am brave enough to give it a go when the weather clears up!

    Work has happened. Very descriptive, I know :P The chassis has been modified a little to allow the axe motor and carrier to come out in one piece. The U bolt holding the back of the motor in has been installed and just needs cutting to size. Currently in the process of getting the lids bolted down.

    I also adapted the carrier to bolt into the main chassis when installed so that it won't go anywhere. The rear armour plates have been test located and fit, just. I've also, finally, had news on the Scythe and the front wedge plate which *finally* means I can crack on and get this robot finished. The Scythe attachment is going to be a fiddly job, needing my first ever countersinking job and some stubby M10 bolts, preferably in Titanium. It'll make sense when you see it.

    I am aiming to have this done by the end of March to give enough time for stress testing before events hopefully restart. Of course, video footage to come soon.

    Some more work happened and... well... here it is.

    That is... wow for me. It obviously isn't quite finished yet but at the moment, minus the Scythe-Axe, it could go into the arena as is. I'd like to think it is much better engineered than the last version, time will tell if it is when it does eventually get into a fight. Weighing it all, it comes in at 38kg which is silly light. I might be able to fit thicker side arms and add some headweights to the axe for the lethal hit.

    At the moment, the gearbox for the carrier has been disassembled as the Titanium shafts need keyways cutting and I'll sort out the drilling of the gears to attach the Scythe-Axe to the gear if only to get the experience of doing countersink drilling.

    Its certainly pretty much all together now, just needs the machine work doing to the shafts and paint, obviously. :P
